This series of reactions lead to the production of the ozone that badly impacts our cities’ atmospheres. Ozone induces visible injury to the surface of leaves and a loss of productivity of plants; both have been used to monitor ozone’s presence and reactions. Generally, the visible injury patterns—such as ‘‘water-logging,’’ lower surface ‘‘bronzing,’’ upper surface ‘‘silvering’’—can be used to assess injury by persons who are well versed in their identification.
